Here is another whippet commission I have just finished - a friend's beautiful boy 'Flyn' (who will be at CRUFTS next year :clap: ). I love these dogs.

Pastel on Mi-Tientes 300x400mm cross posted in animals.

I'm dying to try the Wallis paper - better order some soon! :wave:

I always think it is really difficult getting the eye at that angle ....... gorgeous highlight in the other......

Lovely job zillot, well done..... congratulations to the doggie too :)

I love the beauty of technique and the unique personality present in this portrait. Did you know the dog? You seem to have nailed his aura!

Thank you all for your comments - they really mean something to me.

I haven't met Flyn yet but I have four whippets myself and will also be taking one to CRUFTS next year so I'll meet him there - there's something special about them for me..........

I really like the expression you captured and the slighty worn collar... :clap:
